Colts coach Chuck Pagano says at his press conference that WR Donte Moncrief has a fractured shoulder blade. He’s out 4-6 weeks.
Phillip Dorsett is the obvious beneficiary here since he’ll serve as the team’s WR2 while Moncrief is out. He’ll be ranked as a fantasy WR2/WR3, depending on the matchup, so he’s a priority add if he’s out on the waiver wire. Chester Rogers played 32% of the snaps with Moncrief sidelined in Week 2, so it looks like he’s the next man up. But when you add his snaps to Moncrief’s (12%), 44% of the snaps does not constitute a full-time player. Instead, look for the Colts to play more two-TE with Dwayne Allen and Jack Doyle, who played 62% of the snaps on Sunday. The Colts may turn back to a three-WR base offense if they think Rogers is ready, but for now we think Doyle gets the next biggest bump after Dorsett. With this timeline, Moncrief is due back sometime around Week 7 to Week 9.
